AARP wants to help you protect your money from scams. The AARP Fraud Watch Network equips people with up-to-date knowledge to spot and avoid scams sooner. Volunteers can teach people about preventing fraud, give support to those who have been targeted, and help spread awareness of fraud to others. Every year, thousands of Americans are impacted by fraud and scams – but you can beat con artists at their own game and help to protect others by joining the AARP Fraud Watch Network as a Volunteer Fraud Fighter. The AARP Fraud Watch Network has made great strides in furthering our mission to help consumers protect themselves, their families, and their communities from scams and fraud, and to provide support when victimization occurs. Volunteer Speakers can help educate community groups, clubs or professional organizations by identifying common scams and teaching people what to watch out for to avoid fraud or identity theft.
